Studying with disability All disabilities are individual and affect the opportunity to study in different ways. That is why all pedagogical assistance is individually adapted. It is important that you get in touch with a coordinator for students with disabilities as soon as possible even when you are still at the stage of considering what to study. This is because it can sometimes take time to plan the provision of the help and support you need. In order to be provided with assistance you need to have a medical certificate from a doctor, psychologist or approved assessor for reading and writing difficulties/dyslexia. Dan Fogby – coordinator for the School of Business and Economics in Kalmar Anna Nymark – coordinator for the School of Business and Economics in Växjö We are here to help you!
Academic misconduct The examiner for a course is obliged to report suspected cheating to the Disciplinary Board Exam invigilators will report to the examiner if a student interacts with another student during a written exam or if a student brings prohibited material to a written exam Theses/Degree projects and other papers are examined using software that check for plagiarism
Avoid cheating and plagiarising Studying at a university demands that you as a student learn how to: analyse on your own and present your own ideas, knowledge and conclusions. use references and quote other texts correctly in order to respect other writers’ texts and the copyright protecting them.
Avoid cheating and plagiarising When you restructure or summarize a text, state the source in the text and in the list of references. If you want to present an extract exactly as it is published, copy it exactly and place the text within quotation marks. State the source by the quote and in the list of references. Learn the correct method of referencing from literature on methodology or from other sources, and also look at the course literature to see examples of how it is done in those. Also see library/academic-studies-workshop?l=en
